    Are you sure you downloaded the correct BIOS per your boards model and Revision? Like I said you mentioned two BIOS's you was using, please look in the corner of your board under the PCI Slots and check the board Revision, then grab the correct BIOS file per your boards revision.

    I downloaded the correct revision buddy, it was rev 2.1 and this was the version - F10 released on 2008/01/04 from this URL
    Code:
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/BIOS_Model.aspx?ProductID=2749#anchor_os


    You still never answered me about what BIOS you are actually using now, please check and let me know. You can find out in CPU-z in the mainboard tab.

    BIOS Properties:
    BIOS Type Award Modular
    BIOS Version EP35C-DS3R F4a
    Award BIOS Type Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
    Award BIOS Message EP35C-DS3R F4a
    System BIOS Date 07/29/08
    Video BIOS Date 03/21/05

    BIOS Manufacturer:
    Company Name Phoenix Technologies Ltd.


    Did you extract the file from the exe?

    Yes buddy I did and found this file - p35cds3r.f10 which I loaded to the USB Pen Drive which I formatted as FAT32.

    The drive was detected in the BIOS but finally it shows this error.


    You are using Qflash correct?

    Yup

    I will try again and revert tomorrow.

    Ahh, You may need to flash F10 from DOS then as F4a may have a older Qflash that is not compatible with the new file formats.

    Do you have a floppy installed? If not, can you install one? If so, just copy all three files onto t a floppy and boot to the floppy and flash from there.

    If you do not have a floppy you will need to either do it to ways. @BIOS, which I do not suggest, or get a bootable CD Such as Ultimate BootCD and run DOS and from there flash with the batch file included with the download.

    If you need more help let me know. And sorry for asking that again, I just wanted to be sure I was not doubting you at all, just checking

    Please find the details in the attachment below.

    Also, I tried to update the BIOS using DOS.

    However I got the error that the BIOS versions were different, hence the utility could not proceed to update the BIOS.

    Any ideas as to what could be the problem ?

    is that the latest @BIOS? I suggest DOS though, but just wondering. Here is the latest Version of Qflash, but I do suggest DOS using the normal method or see my thoughts below about a mid way BIOS and or FlashSPI >>

    Version 2.05
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Utility

    You could use flashSPI if you are SURE you have the correct version for your board. You can get that program here, it would be used in DOS, it will tell you incorrect version as well maybe just accept and say yes >>


    FlashSPI
    FlashSPI.zip

    Use it the same as SPIFlash, example
    A:>Flashspi.exe p35cds3r.f10

    You may need to rename the BIOS file to .bin, but I do not think so

    Another thing you could do is try flashing a middle BIOS, like maybe F6-F9 and then if one of those work you should be able to then flash from DOS without issue

    The gigabyte Website does not have F6 version.
    Can you upload the version if you have ?

    Meanwhile, let me try to Flash the BIOS with the given options.

    Please try F9 from here
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-P35C-DS3R (rev. 2.1)

    Use DOS and this command >>
    A:>Flashspi.exe p35cds3r.f10 /py /sn /cd /cc/ r /f

    There was never F4 BIOS for your board (REV 2.1) the first is F9. So are you sure you have Rev 2.1? If you do, you must have flashed a incorrect BIOS in the past somehow?

    Can you post me a pic of your board revision # to be sure? Just want to be sure ya know. ONLY use the /f (FORCE) switch listed above if you are SURE you have the correct BIOS for your boards revision.

    If you still have issues, and you are sure all is correct, then you will need to use the SPIFlash I sent to you before, not FlashSPI. I do mean SPIFlash, as it will flash a mismatched BIOS into boards

    I am sure that I have REV 2.1 of the board (GA-EP35C-DS3R).

    This is the first time I am trying to upgrade my BIOS since I bought it last year.

    To confirm, I will try to post the screen shot today.

    Kindly provide the download link for SPIFlash.

    I think I see the issue, sorry to have missed it before! It looks like you are trying P35 BIOS, and you should be using EP35 BIOS according to your image of @BIOS

    F4 final is the latest
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - BIOS - GA-EP35C-DS3R (rev. 2.1)

    If you are still not for sure, please post an image of CPU-z Motherboard tab it will show the current BIOS and exactly which board you have EP35 or P35
